The Passau Museum has a small section of Harrach vases with stripes in various colours and shapes. Another reference showing other examples that can be found on this topic is BohemianGlassAndMore.Com under the Harrach section.

The second vase is of the same decor as the first vase. Both vases are cased glass. The inner layer is amber and opaque white stripes and the outer layer is vaseline green which will react a neon green under a black light.

The baskets shown in the third pic are from a WOMAN'S DAY magazine. The article was written in August 1966 with two pages of front and back examples of various baskets. I'm including these baskets to show the basket with the flowers appears to be the same decor as the two other vases.

Last pic is from the Butler Brother's wholesale catalog, 1930 and shows the same shape as the basket in the third pic. These baskets have 16 puffy ribs and the casing has a fine rib or threading present. This particular basket shape was mass produced and can be found in a variety of decors. The shape is currently claimed as Franz Welz.

Do I say all of these examples are from Harrach? Currently, the shapes from the second vase and the basket are attributed to Franz Welz and even Ruckl.

There was a mass production of Bohemian Export to the UK and US from the late Victorian era all the way through the Art Deco years. It's obvious there is more than one glass maker involved, but who made what? If I could offer some advice, from my own experience, I have learned to keep an open mind to all of the possibilities based on what research comes forth, because research has proven it does evolve. As far as an opinion goes.... it can be true or false. Information that is not visible to comprehend and can't be referenced is only a thought or belief.

    Hi Jay. The first shape has been connected to Harrach, because the shape is at the PM under Harrach. The second vase and the basket shape are found in many other decors. Those two shapes add a twist, because the décor is the same as the first vase which is considered Harrach. Are they? Remember, there is no Ruckl under the PM. For me, I consider it a Bohemian export, Ruckl and possibly others could have made it. Basket shapes have helped me a lot with the research, because I can find a date and understand what is Bohemian or not, as described from Butler Brothers catalogs. The catalogs don't ever give a maker and maybe it's because this type of glass was produced by supply and demand. Finally, the vases do glow neon green under a black light. Thanks for having an interest, Jay. :)
